Nobody But You

Here's another great song by the beautiful and talented Wendy Matthews. (It's actually by the short-lived Australian band Absent Friends, with Wendy on vocals.) Notes Wikipedia:

[The Absent Friends'] single "I Don’t Want To Be With Nobody But You" was a significant commercial success. It was a cover of the Eddie Floyd classic. The cover to the single credited the song to Absent Friends featuring Wendy Matthews. Also guesting on the track was vocalist Peter Blakeley (backing vocals). The song peaked at Number 4 on the Australian charts during July 1990, and later won the ARIA Award for ‘Best Single’ for 1991.

As often is the case when I choose songs to share on The Wild Reed, the lyrics of this one kinda reflect things I'm currently going through in my life. I guess that's to be expected.

Anyway, regardless of its relevance to your life or mine, I think you'll find "I Don't Want to Be With Nobody But You" a great song that's beautifully delivered by Wendy Matthews. Enjoy!

. . . Man, I love you, so put an end to your fantasy,
or you just might, you just might blow it all.
Get yourself together and, baby,
when you do, you're going to see
I'll be true to you.

Coz I don't want to be with nobody but you.
No, no, I don't want to be with no one but you.
I want to be wrapped up in the arms of my loving man.
(Come on and rock me)
Rock me in your arms like I know you can.

"I Don't Want To Be With Nobody But You" is available on the following albums: Stepping Stones: The Best of Wendy Matthews (1999) and The Essential Wendy Matthews (2007).
